Today's Progress

This is a bag of yarn that I bought at Yarn Paradise in the Biltmore area of Asheville, NC this week. They will be used to make some light and bright cinnamon roll pincushions to sell at the Pensacola (FL) Quilt Show in Feb. 2010.

AJ's quilt has been moving along. I finished 20 blocks today and started 15 more to finish the center of the quilt. This isn't necessarily the layout I'll sew, but it's how the blocks went up on the wall. I'll give AJ some choices on the layout.

I also sewed some new borders onto this Blue Star Banner. A Blue Star Banner is hung in a window to signify that a household has a family member at war. It hung in our window for our son Bryan's first deployment to Afghanistan and it's hanging again starting this week for his second deployment.

Thank you for your great advice on Asheville! Today we explored downtown, ate at Tupeolo Honey, went to Waechter's and scored big at Asheville Cotton Company. Tomorrow we will do Biltmore and the shops nearby.
